MSVIDEO.DLL Error Message

I am running Windows XP Pro.  All of a sudden several of my programs open with an "AXWIN Frame Window - Bad Image" error message that says:  "The application or DLL C:\WINDOWS\system\MSVIDEO.DLL is not a valid Windows image.  Please check this against your installation diskette".

After hitting "OK" a few times the message goes away and the program seems to work fine.  Is this a problem?  And how can I get rid of the error message?

Thanks,

Phil Simmons

P.S.  I checked to see if I have the MSVIDEO.DLL file in my system file, and it's there.

have you downloaded and reinstalled the DLL? Rename the first before you write over.

Well, I tried replacing the MSVIDEO.DLL file from the download suggested by Snurker, but it did not change the problem.  Any other ideas?

Commented:
Did you register teh DLL?

Commented:

I have the same question as Benz219 - How do you "register" a dll ????

Commented:
Hi Phil,
Are you still having to do the same multi click off the popup just to us your computer?

Commented:
regsvr32 <filename>.dll or regsvr32 <path>\<filename>.dll
where <path> is the path to the file, and <filename> is  the name of the file.

BENZ219,  I uninstalled a bunch of programs that might have been the source of the problem, and (though I don't have the programs) the problem seems to have gone away.  I'm going to reinstall when I get a chance, and if the problem reoccurs I will follow SNURKER's  suggestion for registering the newly downloaded version of the DLL.

Roxio or Nero, Blackberry Desktop Manager and PowerDesk seem to be the most likely culprits.  But I can't be sure.

Commented:
I Do not have Nero, or Blackberry or Power desk,:  I do have MS Office (2003) with Power point and Sonic by Roxio. More to come Benz219
